To rescue a victim of cardiac arrest, you need an AED that is ready to deliver a lifesaving shock. But, just having an AED is not good enough. To save a life, you have to make sure your AED is working and will be in the hands of a trained volunteer responder. If that sounds simple, you may not realize all you need to know and do to set up and maintain a successful AED program.
ARE YOUR AEDS READY AND COMPLIANT?
Here are some important questions for anyone managing AEDs:
Are you certain every one of your AEDs is ready and will work in an emergency?
Do you know the current self-test status of every AED in your program?
Are you checking AED status regularly?
Do you know when to replace the pads and batteries for each of your AEDs?
Are you tracking the responders assigned to your AEDs?
Who will you call in order to train your responders in using AEDs and CPR?
Do you know when your responders will need re-training to maintain their rescue skills?
Can you quickly and accurately review the current status of all your AEDs and trained responders?
